Rotowire: Oct 19 / 11:37a ET
News: Paajarvi will draw into the lineup Sunday in place of injured Paul Stastny, according to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Impact: The former first-round pick has fallen out of favor in St. Louis with the arrival of some new faces this year. He will have a chance to make a good impression in his debut, but will likely be limited to fourth-line duty.

News: Paajarvi would likely slot onto the fourth line if he makes the club, according to Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Coach Ken Hitchcock said his performance at training camp "started well and then leveled off." The Blues are expected to trim their roster on Sunday.
Impact: The speculation about whether Paajarvi would even make the Blues is a bit surprising, but the former tenth overall pick in the 2009 draft has not developed into an impact player. His speed is an asset that could keep him on the roster, but the Blues have brought in a number of promising new forwards who have clearly leapt over Paajarvi in the pecking order.
